game! [15 Oct 2009|06:47pm]

What's your alternate cast? Mine is a mix of old Hollywood stars. It would be bizarrely entertaining to see these people doing this.

Max - Jackie Gleason
Leo - Jerry Lewis
Ulla - Audrey Hepburn
Franz - Gene Kelly
Roger - Errol Flynn
Carmen - Vincent Price

Sidestory because I like double posts:
For a history essay test question, we had to write a little on Hitler. I had to fight with myself not to put 'Adolf Elizabeth Hitler.'

In the King of Broadway song..
When Max says he was the protoge of the great Borris Tomashefsky..
What does he say in Yiddish?

Its been annoying me for ages.

Has anyone here seen the stage show? I'm presuming yes. Do you like the movie version or the stage version better? (Vocally and as an all-over performance.)

Got my tickets for the UK tour in Glasgow! So I finally get to see it a mere 6.5 years after opening night at the St James!

Allan Stewart is replacing Russ Abbot as Roger DeBris which is a shame as I'd have liked to see Russ. Not that Allan Stewart isn't good too but it just feels a bit like they're pandering to the Scottish audience.

I hear Peter Kay is going to be Roger again when the tour moves on to Cardiff.

Who knows? I don't speak Yiddish! [11 Sep 2007|11:48am]


Hello all,

I'm a huge Laniac and "The Producers" is definitely my favorite of all the many, many wonderful things he's done. The OBC's of Forum and Producers preserve my sanity on my morning commute!

I hope to see the UK tour when it hits Glasgow in November (since I'll be there at the time).

Anyway, I was just wondering - is there anybody out there who does speak Yiddish and can translate what Boris says to Max on his deathbed? It's probably something completely filthy but I'd love to know if it actually means something!

Hi everyone! I created a community for Mel's new musical Young Frankenstein...just thought I'd spread the word. Also...if anyone would be interested in helping me with graphics...that would be greatly appreciated!


Costumes [30 Apr 2007|11:28pm]

William Ivey Long did the costume designs for The Producers. In Costume Design: Techniques of Modern Masters by Lynn Pecktal, there was an interview with him. I believe he's speaking about the designs for Lend Me a Tenor (can't quite pick up the subject before this quote).

...This play takes place in the early 1930s, and the room is Art Deco. I thought, what I should find is Moorish Deco. ... I was doing a dance piece at the City Center, and I looked up at the facade. ... The next day I came with my camera and my telephoto lens and I photographed the Moorish tiles on the Inside and outside. The pattern on the back of the cape is the courtyard from the Alhambra Palace. ... There's a line in the play that the dowager was supposed to look like a wedding cake. ...The dress appeared in Baltimore, and everyone was just screaming and yelling and laughing. I thought it was fine, and Ken changed the line to, "You look like the Chrysler Building." I had done the Chrysler Building when I was trying to do the "wedding cake." So the joke's on me.

For anybody who may be interested, there is a very long and rambly review of the English stage show of The Producers here at my journal. I apologise for the stupid amount of detail I went into, but I couldn't stop writing! Needless to say, I loved it! :)

Hey guys....I just wanted to brag...Thursday I saw The Producers at St. James Theater (8th and 44th) in Broadway!

[ mood | creative ]

Okay, hello everyone! I'm very new to this, so if I'm doing something wrong you'll have to excuse me.

BUT, I loooooooooooove (love love love) the Producers! Its the best! But coming online, I've noticed that like every other producers fangirl has a crazy obsession with Max/Leo gayness. And well, I don't know if I'm the only one, but I didn't see them as gay. Hmmm. Maybe its just me. Tell me what YOU think :)

And... I dont think I did the poll right. Hmph.

Poll #xxxx Max/Leo
Open to: all, results viewable to: all

Do you think Max and Leo are gay?

No, but its fun to write slash about it
Not at all
Well they could be
I don't know

And see you, you, you........not you! [26 Mar 2007|09:44am]

(I'm so sorry this computer won't let me do a LJ Cut)

So I saw The Producers last night with Sarah. I brought the movie soundtrack in the car and we blared it while driving. Our seats were really good. Portal 9 row 22 seats 5 and 6. All we had to deal with was the people coming in after us and getting up to let them through.

Jason Simon (Max Bialystock) was awesome, and as he said in the middle of "Betrayed" 'Step four: raise the money! Along came Bialy. Intermission! (he sits on his jail cell bed and flips through the playbill.) He's good. He's no Nathan, but he's good.' I burst out into giggling fits at that. Betrayed is probably his best song, followed closely by King of Broadway. At least in my humble opinion. Hehe funny part before Intermission, HoldMe TouchMe is on rollerblades and MAx let' her go and she crashes and he goes, "Oh my God! You forgot to sign the check!"

Austin Owen (Leo Bloom) is a great physical actor and surpasses Matthew Broderick a bit in my books. But just by a bit. His "I Wanna Be A Producer" kicked so much ass! His scene with Frank on the rooftop owned, as did his scene with Carmen and Roger. Thank god he and Ulla were the same height.

Jesse Coleman (Franz Liebkind) he was just meh. Will Ferrel owns this character.

John West (Carmen Ghia) was amazing! He is Carmen encarnate. His hair was awesome and his body language was flamboyant to a T. His Ssssss were long and very funny, having Max and Leo looking for a leak.

Brad Nacht (Roger De Bris) was great. When he played Hitler in Springtime for Hitler (the play within the play) at act 2 of Springtime he comes and sits on the edge of the stage and breaks character, going, "Hey there. How are you? No not you, ma'm, YOU Sir! (looks down into the orchestra) You can't see this but there's a pit of extremely handsome men down there. I just want to dive right in!"

Elizabeth Pawlowski (Ulla) Beat Uma Thurman by a million! her accent was rich and funny, her costumes were scandelous, but sexy. And her voice was strong and rich. her comedic timing was spot on, as Max would say, "Smart as a whip!"

You could tell by the time Springtime for Hitler came on who had seen the movie and who hadn't. Those who had had no reaction to the women who came down the stairs wearing pretzel, sausages and beer on their head and hips.

At the end of the show the cast came out for a final boy and then sang "Goodbye!"

Thanks for coming to see our show/ Sad to tell you we've got to go/ Grab your bag and head to the door/ In case you didn't notice their ain't anymore!/ If you liked our show tell everyone but/ if you think it stinks keep your big mouth shut!/ Get Out! it's over.

Sarah and I kept repeating lines from it but our most quoted line was, "They come here. They all come here. How do they find me?" I saw the side door and tried to convince Sarah to go and see if we could get autographs but by that time we were in her car so it was too late. Oh well.

Roger Bart. [23 Mar 2007|10:20am]

Roger Bart is in Hostel II.


I will spare this entry my initial reaction, which features a lot of "OMG!" and exclamation points. For those who don't know why this news would be shocking, go rent Hostel. It's a great movie just... uhm, the polar opposite of The Producers. As in, if the two movies were real people and Hostel ran into The Producers in a dark alley, one of the two would not survive. Guess which one? Crappy metaphor; just woke up >.>;;

Hello Producer Fans! [17 Feb 2007|08:14pm]

Sorry I don't make Icons. I just obsess over the show. I heart the bloopers on the DVD just cuz the cast is amazzzzaing. I wish Cady Huffman would have done the movie. But, im a broadway finatic. YES I AM .. But producers is the BEST OF THE BEST OF THE BEST. I finally found ppl i can share my obsession with. Will you be my friends >?!?!

Lol sorry didnt mean to sound desperate. I do that oftenly(i made the word up ok)
Keep It Gay!!

[05 Feb 2007|05:13pm]

Does anyone else have strange dreams about the Producers?

I had one last night that I was in a production of the show, except someone had altered the lyrics of the songs for that performance and no one had bothered to tell me so I had no clue what I was meant to be singing. Then it changed and I was talking to John Barrowman (the lead tenor in Springtime For Hitler in the movie) and we were having a discussion about hotsy-totsy Nazis. 

Share your dreams here. :D

I saw the Bway tour for the second time. The more I see it and hear it, the more I love it.

I wrote about it in my journal.
